Tree frogs and chiropractors

Yesterday Koira and Pallo went to the chiropractor for the first time. I've never been to one myself, but someone suggested they could use an adjustment, and I figured why not.

Pallo was a bit weird about it, as he is with pretty much anyone but me touching him, but the chiro worked with him about it, so he did pretty good after he relaxed a little. Koira just wanted to lick the chiro, but did get her jaw and neck realigned, so hopefully that will help her with catching the ball out of the flyball box.

Then, this evening, Koira came walking in the house with something green on her back. Thinking it was a leaf, I gave it a flick, realizing as soon as I made contact that it was not a leaf, it was a tree frog. I searched all over where I thought it had gone, and didn't find anything. Then, a few minutes later, sure enough, there was a tree frog hanging out on my door. I took it out and let it loose in the front yard in some bushes. Now I just wonder if its the same tree frog Koira had hitch a ride in with her a month or so ago. Does she have a tree frog friend, or is she just tree like to the frogs?

Canada, here we come!

I just got an email this morning from a team looking for a dog to run both days of the Black Creek tournament, so looks like me and Pallo have our ticket to Canada.

I just made a vet appointment for him to get his health certificate, so that we can actually cross the border both ways, because it would suck to get most of the way through the drive and then not get over the border. Now I just need to look up where we need to get a ferry, what it costs, and make sure I've got the money to do this.... I better have the money to do this, I've been looking forward to it for a long time.

Well, apparently I can't count. The points for our tournament in Seattle were posted on NAFA's website, and Pallo only has 17 points from the tournament, which means he didn't get his first title yet. I'm pretty disappointed, but know it was nothing he did that kept him from getting the title.

On the other hand of things, I got an interview for working at a humane society for tomorrow, so I'm pretty excited and nervous for that. It would be awesome to not have to piece together multiple part time jobs and hope I made enough money by the end of the month for rent and such.
